Please Note This section lists cDNAs and ESTs that fall within the genomic extent of the gene model, which may include cDNAs and ESTs of genes within introns, or of overlapping genes. Please see GBrowse for alignment of the cDNAs and ESTs to the gene model.
For each fully sequenced cDNA the DGRC maintains various forms of the cDNA (e.g tagged or untagged) in several different host vectors for subsequent cloning and expression in Drosophila and Drosophila cell lines.
Area matching Drosophila EST AA201957.
abs is essential for the directed and fasciculated early outgrowth of the Bolwig's nerve, as well as for navigation at later stages.
There is a widespread requirement for abs during post-transcriptional gene expression. In direction of increasing cytology: abs+ Gel+ hkb? tub?
Mutants show specific defects in many developmental processes, including cell shape changes, localisation of RNA and apoptosis.
Isolated during a screen for mutations that disrupt Bolwig's organ or Bolwig's nerve development.
